Good new world style Zin but not overblown. 15ABV but not too hot on palate. Can taste the wood but reasonable. Long finish. Interesting nose of ripe berries currants and savory note (burnt salmon skin? From Leila). be great with meats. Only 300 cases or so. Two days later tasting even more balanced. First day under gas. Second in Eto. Working out great. — 2 years ago

Just at the edge of too much oxidation. Nice golden color but got that hints of sherry nose and notes of oxidation on palate. However went quite well with the garlic and spicy shrimp by Leila! Waited too long and got bit of preox. — 4 months ago

Impressive amount of vino goodness for $13 from Moore’s. White flowers peaches minerals on scintillating nose and then firm lively texture and long finish. Perfect for steel head trout in garlic butter etc. by Leila. Yum. — 5 months ago

CVed again second time 9/7/17. Same note on nose. Leila hit it on head. It's dill! And stone fruits and hay. Carries through to palate and finish but with an acidic steak. So interesting for a forty year old wine though library wine and color is amazingly young looking with beautiful golden hue. That biting finish however makes me want food. Very long finish. Finally opened 7/25/18. Still an amazing wine. That dill note perhaps due to cellar aging for so long? — 3 years ago
